Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

The spirit of service to humanity which your community exemplifies, captured beautifully in your renowned slogan of “Love for all, hatred for none”, has been very much in evidence, as I have seen for myself in the incredible work the community is doing across the UK in response to challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. From providing PPE and social support, hosting vaccination centres across mosques and your community centres, to ‘Easy Cooking Campaigns’ – these are all great examples of how you have pulled together during times of unprecedented challenge and helped each other – and for that all I can say is thank you and keep going!
